Z-Rox – a one dimensional puzzle game

z-roxYou know that bit in Flatland where the square is trying to explain what a sphere is to the other two dimensional people around him? A sphere is a point which grows to a small circle as it passes through the two dimensional plane, then grows to a bigger circle, then shrinks back to a point. I’m sure you all remember that. (You should read Flatland. There’s a game based on Flatland actually… I’ll post that some other time.) Anyway, that’s Z-Rox in a nutshell except it’s two dimensional figures passing through a one dimensional space.

I love Z-Rox just for being interesting and original, but also for being accessible. It’s one of those games which is very easy for a non-gamer to grasp and enjoy quickly.
